Tanyer Sönmezer trained in mechanical engineering at Middle East Technical University, but he never practiced his profession. After receiving an MBA and a master’s degree in marketing, he attended several training programs, such as “Effective Management of Boards of Directors” at Harvard Business School, “Leadership” at the Oxford Leadership Institute, “Innovation” at MIT, and “Change Management” at Stanford. However, he is a consultant who has learned about life working at an amusement park. His roles as chef, magician, pilot, photographer, and conference speaker aside, he prefers to be an ordinary hero for those he loves. Sönmezer is the CEO of the Management Centre Türkiye (MCT) Group. He wrote two best-selling books: “Yöneticinin Sırt Çantası” (Backpack of a Manager) and “Yöneticinin Beslenme Çantası” (Lunch Box of a Manager).
